Jake Paul vs Ben Askren LIVE: Stream, latest updates and how to watch online

Follow all the action as YouTube star Jake Paul takes on former UFC fighter Ben Askren at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Determined to set up a fight with Conor McGregor, Paul has won his first two professional bouts, with knockout victories against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson. Askren, meanwhile, retired from mixed martial arts after he went 1-2 in the UFC, and was famously on the receiving end of the fastest knockout in UFC history when he was defeated by Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239.

With former world champion Regis Prograis appearing on the undercard, it is set to be an explosive, trash-talk laden evening of entertainment. Many have derided Paul’s claims to be an “elite fighter”, however, the American is determined to prove his credentials are real in his hardest test yet. “A young prospect with a lot of motivation, a lot of hunger and I think people see me as an amateur,” he said. “There’s sort of a big difference and there’s a big gap in between where I’m actually at and what the general audience will think, but I’m excited again to show my ability again on Saturday, against Ben who is a world-class fighter.” Follow all the action live below:
